Doug Pederson: Isaac Seumalo to 'miss some time' with knee injury

The Eagles will have to make another adjustment to the offensive line.

After what Head Coach Doug Pederson cited the offensive line as one of the positives from Sunday's game against the Rams, the Eagles will be without starting left guard Isaac Seumalo "for some time" after he suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of the game. He was replaced by Matt Pryor, who played 46 total snaps on offense.

Pederson indicated that Seumalo will be placed on Injured Reserve with the chance to come back after at least three games.

That means the Eagles will have their third different starting offensive line combination in as many games when the Bengals come to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday.

Against the Rams, quarterback Carson Wentz was not sacked once, and the rushing game – buoyed by the return of Miles Sanders – churned out 121 yards on the ground.

"Our offensive line played well against another good front yesterday," Pederson said. "Aaron Donald, for the most part, wasn't around Carson, maybe once or twice, but we kept him from the quarterback.

"JP (Jason Peters) was improved. I think he kind of settled in at left tackle having a full week again, really two weeks of practice. Did a nice job.

"(Nate) Herbig played really well. That's no small task blocking (Donald) and, of course, 90 (Michael) Brockers, and some of those guys on the D-line, but he did a really nice job. (Jason) Kelce did an outstanding job. Lane Johnson, it was great to get him back. He did a really good job. Before Isaac got hurt, playing well. Pryor came in and actually did some good things. It wasn't perfect."
